Oprah’s OWN Network picks up “Family Affair”


Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network has picked up the documentary “Family Affair” by Chico Colvard at the Sundance Film Festival. PR Newswire reports that the film is the first one to join the Documentary Film Club that will be shown on mainstream TV. The idea behind the club is to “spotlight cinematic documentaries that can inspire and entertain, and encourage emerging creative voices to bring their stories to a mainstream television audience on OWN.”

The film follows Colvard through his family secrecy, from bizarre and random events that ultimately shaped the destruction of his family. The film is raw, cathartic, and paints a picture of suffering but also of forgiveness, family and love.

    Oprah already has world domination over tv, does she really need to step into the film world now?

    No doubt it is a better world because Oprah has been here. She has done a lot of good and she plasters her name all over every donation she makes. She could have educated all the children in Africa for the millions she spent on one school for so few children. True generosity is anonymous. Is Oprah generous or does simply need to see her ego everywhere?

    Oprah’d out!
